Free Financial Support
As individuals near the end of life, it’s normal to face concerns about income, additional costs and managing finances. We’re pleased to be able to say that with ellenor, financial help and assistance is available.
This service helps with support and guidance on the following:
- Applying for disability benefits, which many do not realise they are entitled to
- Health costs, such as prescriptions and travel to hospital
- Transport concessions such as Blue badges
- Accessing charitable grants
- Signposting to organisations who are able to give more detailed financial advice
Please note, this is NOT a Financial advice service, but we are able to direct people to appropriate help and expert advice surrounding other cases outside immediate welfare advice, such as working rights, pension rights, life insurance claims and the importance of wills and forward financial planning.
Free Legal Advice Service
Stanton Solicitors offer a free legal advice service for Ellenor users, supporters and staff and historically a solicitor has been available on The Green at Northfleet between 11 am and 12 noon each Thursday for drop-in advice.
Because of the building work, that venue is now no longer convenient for most people and therefore Stantons are now offering the same service either on a drop-in basis or by telephone at their office at 24 Wrotham Road, Gravesend, DA11 0PA between 10.30 and 12.30 every Thursday.
Please ring Stantons on 01474 579940 during those hours and they can either offer immediate advice by telephone or can arrange for you to pop in to see them. They can also arrange to see you at Northfleet or the Manor Hotel if travel to Wrotham Road is difficult.
